    I fished in Alaska last year for king salmon, and brought home an 8 1/2 foot Daiwa heartland salmon/steelhead rod. Has anybody ever tried one of these for cats? It sure seems to be a nice rod. I reeled in 4 king salmon between 10 & 36 pounds on that baby, a couple of them were in heavy current too. Anyhow, I was just wondering if any of you guys had ever tried 'em.
